About Us

Matthews Presbyterian Church dates to February 10, 1877, when a commission appointed by the Mecklenburg Presbytery organized the Matthews Presbyterian Church.  Our first church building was a one-room frame structure with stained glass windows.  A steeple over the vestibule held a large, good-toned bell, the only one in town, which was tolled for funeral services and used to signal fires.  The bell remains in our church today.

We've come a long way since then. In the fall of 2000, we opened our Preschool, Matthews Presbyterian Church Child Development Center, strives to create a nurturing environment for our students and families that encourages growth, love and laughter. We are fortunate to have so many wonderful families as part of our preschool community and we are grateful every day that they have chosen to share their children with us.


Our Mission

Matthews Presbyterian Church Child Development Center is founded on the conviction that every child is created uniquely and loved by God. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the young child to grow spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally.
